POS 2009 or Windows Embedded? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All, I have few questions running in my mind, plz help with answers:

    1. Does Windows Embedded POSReady 7 comes with POS installed and ready to use as a register?

    2. If the answer to the above question is YES, then can I use the Windows Embedded POSReady 7 as central database server for multiple registers??

    3. What is better to use? MS POS 2009 or Windows Embedded POSReady 7?

    4. I have installed POS 2009 on 3 machines with Windows 7. Made 1 Central Database, 2nd & 3rd registers. But the problem is I can not connect the registers to the main database. It shows me the error that logon using the account that is administrator on both machines. I am fed up of this error, can't find a solution to it.

    I have posted my problem on the forum: https://community.dynamics.com/product/rms/f/106/p/88870/169412.aspx#169412

    Thnx.

  • POSReady 7 is just the operating system. It helps address PCI security concerns. You can install any application you want to run including the MS Dynamics package.

  • Ashis,

    Question #4 is better served by the Dynamics folks where you posted a copy of this inquiry.  This forum is strictly prepared to discuss the Windows Embedded retail platforms.
